Master's Program Co-Hosts CUWiP Conference January 12-14

The Master's Program joined the UO Physics Department and UO Women in Physics to host the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics in January. Over 200 undergraduate women in physics were on campus to attend workshops and presentations led by leaders in academia and industry. The event also featured a poster session and networking opportunities. Alumnae from Thermo Fisher Scientific, ESI, Voxtel and Zemaz were on hand to talk with students about their experiences in industry.
